New Franken: Something in the Water (Does Not Compute)

Hello, there! Today I have a new franken I created a couple weeks ago.

For those of you not familiar with the term, a "Franken" is when you mix other polishes or polish ingredients (i.e. glitter, eye shadow, pigments etc.) together to create your own unique color, or a duplicate of your favorite color.

My newest creation is named "Something in the Water (Does Not Compute)". Like all my other frankens, this one is named after a Prince song from his "1999" album...I LOVE PRINCE! O(+>

Okay, Okay, on with the nails :)



























Pretty isn't it!!!! I love blues and this new color is no exception! Here it is 3 coats, because I wanted to really get a saturated holographic look! By the way, it was perfectly opaque in 2 coats. :)






































I love used old OPI bottles, for my frankens, they are great sized bottles, have great brushes and my frankens look so pretty in them...LOL :)





















































I am super happy with this creation and the formula is super easy. equal parts NARS "Midnight Express" and OPI DS "Sapphire"..that's it!!!!  Okay 2 more pics :P...



























Okay, until next time..Keep it Sweet!


Pin It!

@KarenD- I know what you mean, I had to wait till I got a back up DS, before I would try this out..LOL, and even then it still hurt a little :)

@AllThingsNails!- I remember that! I love Fantasy, and thank you!

@-Diana- I do too, I am still in search for a Dark Navy Blue holo, but I do not think it is possible..this will have to do till then :)
